How to import .ged file with accents on characters ?

0 votes
I try to open a genealogy file, "gedcom" format, that contains french names with characters like 'é', 'è', 'ç', etc...

These characters are replaced by '?' while opening the ged file in yEd.

I suppose it is a matter of charecter encoding (?) Can you help ?

Since version 3.9, yEd additionally supports the most common encodings, including UTF-8, UTF-16, and ANSI.

You are probably right, this is almost certainly an encoding issue. For GEDCOM import, yEd currently supports only the ANSEL encoding. I.e. please convert your file to ANSEL.
